Ugwu, a boy from a poor village, works as a houseboy for a university professor. Olanna, a young woman, has abandoned her life of privilege in Lagos to live with her charismatic new lover, the professor. And Richard, a shy English writer, is enthralled to Olanna’s enigmatic twin sister. As the horrific Biafran war engulfs them, they are thrown together and pulled apart in ways they had never imagined. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s masterpiece, winner of the Orange Prize for Fiction, is a novel about Africa in a wider sense: about the end of colonialism, ethnic allegiances, class and race – and about the ways in which love can complicate all of those things.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie grew up in Nigeria. Her works have been translated into over thirty languages and have appeared in various publications including; The New Yorker, Granta, The O. Henry Prize Stories, The Financial Times, and Zoetrope. She is the author of the novels: Purple Hibiscus; which won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award, Half of a Yellow Sun; which won the Orange Prize and was a National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist, and Americanah; which won the National Book Critics Circle Award and was named one of The New York Times’ Top Ten Best Books of 2013.
